For my parent’s 50th anniversary celebration, my brothers and I rented a huge house on Hilton Head Island. The whole week was a celebration of my parent’s love and devotion to each other, and having children and grandchildren with them was how they wanted to acknowledge the milestone.
But for me, there was a lot going on in my emotions – my girls growing up, an amicable divorce on the horizon, uncertainty about the future – and I got up early one morning to walk to the beach and watch the sun rise over the Atlantic Ocean. The ocean has always put things in perspective for me, and this morning was no exception.
The calm of an Atlantic Ocean sunrise was a nice complement to my first parasailing adventure later in the week!
